Leicester's De Montfort Hall is another venue familiar to Lee fans from his solo concert there in February 2011 and many chose to return there for the final show of the West End Men's November tour. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the hall and that was mirrored on stage, with the Men in exuberant form for this finale.
While the choreography may not have been quite as slick as in Gateshead, the show remained dynamic, powerful and immensely entertaining. There was a huge amount of fun - a few stories we hadn't heard before, a few moves we definitely hadn't seen, and the voices... the voices were as stunning as ever.
Time to thank the supremely talented band - (from left as they appeared on stage) musical director, Will Stuart, on piano, Tommy Emmerton on guitar, Jo Nichols on bass guitar/double bass, Toby Drummond on drums and Howard McGill on flute/saxophone.
Credit also to director, Mitch Sebastian, musical supervisor, David White, and last but not least to producers, James Milton and Paul Morrissey (Milton Morrissey Ltd) and Jason Haigh-Ellery, all of whose imagination and hard work brought this wonderful show to life.
Here's to news of more dates very soon ... pretty please!
As always, there's a full set-list and below, some scans of the programme:
Finally, a few show photos from me:
